Foodbank e-vouchers

Our foodbank works using a e-voucher referral system. Find out more about how we work.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with an electronic voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. 

Our foodbank works with 180+ different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors. To find out more about the agencies that hold our vouchers and how you can get help, please contact us.

When you visit or speak with a referral agency, they will take some basic details from you to complete the online voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance.

The referral agency issue an electronic voucher on your behalf which is sent directly to us at Slough Foodbank. We then know the information to prepare the food parcel. You then turn up at the agreed distribution centre (see visiting a foodbank or locations for more details) where you give your details and you will be provided with a nutritious, emergency 3-day food parcel. Please remember to bring strong carrier bags or shopping trolley bag. There is no need for you to email or print anything.

If you are a referral agency and would like to become a registered voucher holder for our foodbank, please contact us to find out more.
